  • Taxes can be a tricky thing. We all know they are a necessary evil. It becomes tricky to determine how much is necessary and how much is evil. Local taxes represent approximately 85 percent of the Carroll County Public Library’s budget. This is how we are able to open our doors every day to serve our community. For us, I put a lot more weight with the necessary part of taxes.

  • Christian Academy of Carrollton junior Nate Newcomer has become Carroll County’s latest Eagle Scout, joining recent local scouts Logan Underwood and Eric Popp as recipients of the award.

    Newcomer participated in Cub Scouts through second grade primarily in Harriett, Tenn., where his family lived before moving to Carroll County. He became involved in Boy Scout Troop 131 in the sixth grade.

    Newcomer and his family moved to Carroll County in 2005, when his father became pastor of Whites Run Baptist Church in Easterday.

  • Children and adults participated in the Urban Ninja Warrior obstacle course Oct. 22. More than 100 people

    participated or volunteered, and the high school and middle school bands broke even on the first-year event. 

  • Following the tobacco buyout, the poultry industry has dramatically grown and is now Kentucky’s number one commodity. Backyard poultry has also surged in popularity.

    A common issue with any type of animal operation is disposal of mortalities. While dead animal pickup services exist for larger animals, this is not the case for poultry.  How do poultry producers dispose of mortalities?

    Producers need to dispose of poultry mortalities within 48 hours of the animal’s death, so consider having a plan in place before bringing poultry onto your farm.
